Fleeing a failed relationship, Kirsty buys a business and a cottage in Cornwall. But set up in the hills behind the cottage is a strange house and in it lives the reclusive Dirk Stratten; rich and remote, but devastatingly attractive. And with him comes his friend Lucian - equally as handsome yet infinitely more dangerous. Gradually Kirsty gets drawn into their world and learns a truth stranger than any fiction. And beneath the cruelty and depravity lies a bargain that must be struck to save a life. Rhea Silva once again weaves her spells and produces a seductive read that is atmospheric and bewitchingly erotic from the start.
